Divide Denmark

A folder of unbound works by four members of the international Fluxus movement, apparently as organized by Danish artist and organizer Knud Pedersen (1925-2014).

Eric Andersen's "Decision-Set" consists of nine sheets of transparent paper printed in black text (English language), along with a title page instructing readers to combine the sheets until reaching "any relevant statement" on a chosen topic.

Robert Filliou's "Exchange of War Memorials," repeats on a single sheet the brief text of a speech delivered at the Copenhagen Museum for Modern Art, January 2, 1971.

Pino Paschali's "Sale of Ground 1 D. Kr. Cheaper Pr.Square Metre with EveryTransaction," is a single-sheet "advertisement" for a one square meter parcel of land, sold with the stipulation that the price be lowered for each subsequent sale.

Knud Pedersen's "Medium" contains instructions for a telephone-based project where callers could leave and/or listen to recorded messages. He also contributed four sheets with various images/text, all of which contain the phrase "part of poster for wall-mounting" in either English of Danish. Three of the four sheets are printed on sticker sheets (as is, perhaps mistakenly, the Paschali sheet).

[Copenhagen], Vintens Forlag Og Kunstbiblioteket, [1972]. Seventeen loose sheets in printed white folder, 11.75 x 8.25 in. The good condition folder shows moderate toning and foxing, with a three-inch split to the bottom rear corner and a short split at base of spine. Contents are very good, with occasional light perimeter toning and a few instances of foxing.
